What is the reality for students and lecturers using online learning and teaching? Does this method of delivery enhance learning and what are the limitations of this medium? The two case study examples in this article describe undergraduate and postgraduate courses previously taught in the School of Nursing at Otago Polytechnic. The undergraduate case study illustrates some of the challenges associated with online teaching and learning at a time when there was limited infrastructure in the organisation for this mode. Whereas the other case study is about how online discussion and activities can fit a particular model of learning.
